LA Rev Stat § 39:698.6 What's This?

§698.6. Resolution provisions; additional bond issues; covenants; collection of sales tax

A. The governing authority may in any resolution authorizing such bonds provide for the respective priorities of its separate blocks, series or issues of bonds issued hereunder, and may provide for the issuance of additional bonds in the future on a parity therewith pursuant to such procedure or restrictions as may be specified in such resolution. In the absence of such provision, if more than one series of bonds shall be issued hereunder payable from the same sales tax revenues, priority of lien on such revenues shall depend on the time of the delivery of such bonds, each series enjoying a lien prior and superior to that enjoyed by any series of bonds subsequently delivered, except that as to any issue or series of bonds which may be authorized as a unit but delivered from time to time in blocks, the governing authority may in the proceedings authorizing the issuance of such bonds provide that all of the bonds of such series or issue shall be coequal as to lien regardless of the time of delivery; provided that nothing herein stated shall vest in any holder of bonds any right of lien or priority of any kind against any part of the sales tax revenues not pledged to the payment of the bonds by the proceedings authorizing the issuance thereof.

B. Any resolution may contain such covenants with the future holder or holders of the bonds as to the sales tax revenues, the disposition of such revenues, the issuance of future bonds, and such other pertinent matters as may be deemed necessary by the governing authority to assure the marketability of such bonds, provided such covenants are not inconsistent with the provisions of this Sub-Part.

C. Any resolution authorizing the issuance of bonds hereunder may contain such provisions to assure the enforcement, collection and proper application of the sales tax revenues as the governing authority may think proper, where not inconsistent with the provisions of this Sub-Part, and when any bonds payable from the sales tax revenues shall have been issued, this Sub-Part, the ordinance or other enactment of the governing authority imposing the sales tax and pursuant to which the tax is being collected, and the obligation of the governing authority to continue to levy, collect and allocate the sales tax, and to apply the revenues derived therefrom in accordance with the provisions of said ordinance or other enactment, shall be irrevocable until such bonds have been paid in full as to principal and interest, and shall not be subject to amendment in any manner which would impair the rights of the holders from time to time of such bonds or which would in any way jeopardize the prompt payment of principal thereof or interest thereon.
